Beginning Saturday, July 15th,
Move-In Appointment time slots for our Lynx Crossing students living on-campus
will be available in the CU Denver Housing Portal!
Students will be able to select one (1) Move-In Appointment per student for access to our Unloading Areas. Please see the Move-In Appointment Selection guide for instructions on how to select!
Move-In Appointments are now located in the Request Changes Tab next to the Housing Contracting Tab. We made this change due to feedback from our students regarding the process for selecting a Move-In Appointment. This should make selecting a Move-In Appointment more readily accessible.
Housing and Dining
is unable to support any requests for early move-in dates.
With the volume of students moving
into the residence halls, there will be a 20-minute unloading window for one
vehicle, per student. Our Staff will have Moving Bins available at each of our
On-Campus Housing Locations (City Heights & Lynx Crossing) to help you unload
your belongings quickly.
After your 20-minute window, we will ask that you relocate your vehicle to another designated parking space. You are free to continue to unload from those spaces, if there are still items that need to be brought into the building.
For those not bringing a vehicle to assist with their move-in, please still sign up for a Move-In Appointment time slot, as it will help our staff to be better prepared for your arrival.
With 5 weeks until Move-In, it's time to start thinking about what to pack! Please see the Lynx Crossing Packing List - 2023-2024 for our updated Packing List. While this is a great start, this is not an extensive list of the items you may need. For clarification on any items you are considering packing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
If you are considering Shipping some of your items, please review the below information.
